Matariki, and Biodynamics

The Maori new year is marked by the rise of Matariki, (a group of stars also known as the Pleiades)
and the sighting of the next new moon. Traditionally, The brighter the stars indicated the warmer the season would be and thus a better crop would be produced.
A Biodynamic gardener also recognizes that the movements of the moon and other planets have a profound influence on the soil, plant and animal life. An astronomical calendar is used to determine auspicious, planting, cultivating and harvesting times. Standard organic practices are applied, enhanced by Biodynamic herbal and mineral preparations.
To learn more about Biodynamic practices, come and attend the special week-end events with Peter Proctor and Rachel Pomeroy on 18-19 June

Open day at Sudesh’s community learning centre,
Tuesday and Thursday 16th and 18th Feb, 1 to 2 pm (looking at offering an evening time as well, details posted later), 8A grand Drive, Remuera

This is a place where you can learn, meet others, share knowledge, relax and see what is happening in the garden. We intend to organise organic workshops all through the year to assist people in setting up and maintain productive food gardens. We hope that this is also going to be place where a group will form, and assist this initiative to develop further.
So this week, come and say hello, have a look, get more info, invite your friends to come along.
Our first workshop, “urban food production design” is scheduled for the first week-end of March.
Contact person is Diane 418 04 38

Hi everyone,
We are setting up a new community learning gardening space around Ellerslie-Remuera. Our focus at present is building up fertility as quickly as possible, with the establishment of hot compost piles on future growing areas. Come and join us and learn how to do this at your place. In return we will ask you to help us building up the piles, We are planning to have sessions on Thursday afternoon and evening.
